Dana Stevens
The New York Times
(Director Bigelow) piles up one nerve-racking crisis after another, interspersed with moments of ethereal, almost otherworldly beauty. Full Review
David Edelstein
Impressive and heartfelt. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Despite drawing from one of the most powerful and true stories from the Cold War, K-19 is only moderately moving. Full Review
James Berardinelli
K-19 will not go down in the annals of cinema as one of the great submarine stories, but it is an engaging and exciting narrative of Man confronting the Demons of his own fear and paranoia. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Rarely has a major motion picture -- and this one is major by virtue of its misplaced ambition as well as its budget -- been afflicted by such flagrant dissonance between subject and style. Full Review
